5th Annual Jazz Festival to Fight Hunger in Chicago
Thursday, February 20, 2014 by Communications

Event draws area’s top talent and raises more than $35,000 to support hunger relief efforts

Chicago, IL – Each day, 1 in 6 Chicagoans struggles with food insecurity and goes to bed hungry.  The Chi-Town Jazz Festival, now in its 5th year, brings together music lovers from across the area to support hunger relieve efforts. The five day festival features well-known local acts at venues from Evanston to Hyde Park.

The 2014 Chi-Town Jazz Festival features Willie Pickens, Tammy McCann, Goran Ivanovic, Matt Ulery, Marquis Hill, Eric Schneider and the Chicago Jazz Orchestra. The festival kicks off Thursday, March 6 at Andy’s Jazz Club in Chicago. Other venues include Constellation, Fitzgerald’s, Green Mill, Jazz Showcase, Logan Center for the Arts, Martyrs, Sheil Catholic Center, and Symphony Center.

Chi-Town Jazz Festival was founded by Father John Moulder, one of Chicago’s most respected jazz guitarists and a Catholic priest at St. Gregory the Great Church in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.

“I was inspired to create the festival based on the need I see and hear about every day in our community,” said Father Moulder. “Catholic Charities has seen a dramatic increase in need, especially during this year’s harsh winter. Each venue and artist donates their space and time, allowing us to donate nearly all of the proceeds to organizations that fight hunger.”

Tickets to the shows start at $15. A complete schedule can be found at Proceeds from the festival benefit Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago and Care for Real food pantry.
